AF finally came today at 5w2d post d&c, so happy and relieved!! So far it's fairly normal, but pretty light. My first day is normally light, then 2nd day heaviest. They normally last 4 days, so I'm curious to see what it does this time. cd1 for me.

Yay!! Fairycat! I'm so happy for you. I can't remember when you said you were going to try again, are you trying this cycle? xx

We were planning to try this next cycle, but now my husband says he is hesitant. He was the one who said he wanted to try ASAP. He's just worried about not following the doc's advice and trying too early and having another mc. So then he says we'll do what I want to do. I'd like to think if it's too early, my body just won't get pregnant. But seeing as I ovulated 2 weeks ago already, and my libido was extra high, my body is probably ready. The doc told us if my first cycle is normal, then he has no problem with us trying right away.

Have you tried opks? Temping is a bit stressful so I'd say to start with opks. I get a pack of 20 from amazon for a few quid. I start on cd 9 and when I get the positive (test line same or darker than control) I usually ovulate 24-48 hours later.
I've been thinking of using them, but I think I'm going to take the chance this month & hope I get pregnant.. Dtd every other day should do it! Haha. If not then next cycle I'm going to use OPKs. I just know they'll stress me out if I start using them this cycle

Hey ladies, hope you're all ok!

Kandl are you going to give OPKs a go? I buy them on eBay, packs of 50 for 5. That sounds like a lot but I must've used half of them since my mc until I got my positive, I normally only need to use a few as I know from charting for so long when I'm likely to get my positive. If your cycle is regular 28 days you probably ovulate on day 14, give or take a couple of days. Might be worth giving OPKs a go if you want to narrow it down, otherwise just need to BD plenty between around CD8-18!

Lora I know what you mean about not wanting to test early, I used to be so strict about not testing until AF is late, but it's so difficult to wait! Especially now I have a massive stash of cheapie HPTs. I spent a ridiculous amount on FRERs and Clearblue digis last month, and that was once I already had my BFP I just end up obsessing over tests trying to check things are progressing ok. I really don't want to end up spending so much again next time, but not sure how else to get any kind of reassurance until my scan. They also helped me realise I was having a mc before anyone would confirm it for me which was kind of a good thing rather than have my hopes too high. I found someone on eBay who sells packs of 2 FRERs for 5.50 though which doesn't help the habit! Makes it slightly more affordable though! I have no idea how they can sell them so cheap when they're so expensive in the shop.

Hope you girls with AF are doing ok, excited for you all for TTC time!

I'm not 100% sure now if my OPK was positive yesterday or just very close, when I look at the dried test it's confusing! Today is definitely positive though. I'm already worried our BD timing wasn't so good, we got two in back to back two nights running which never happens, so I was proud of our efforts but think they were too early dammit. I keep reading about O-2 being the day with the highest chance of conceiving, and I think it will work out as the one we missed being that day. I've actually had what I think are ovulation pains yesterday and today, I've never had them before and started to panic it was maybe part of my loss not quite finished, but when I turned to Dr Google it seems to be really common to get ovulation pains after a loss, for some reason, so think that's what it is seeing as I've got other fertile signs it would make sense. Would be handy if I always had them to know when to BD!

I think anything that avoids stress is a good thing

Good luck!

Good plan. I find I feel more stressed if I don't use OPKs, they help me feel I have some kind of control over what's going on! But then again I need to rely on them with my cycles being a bit temperamental. Fingers crossed you won't need to bother with them!

I think your timing sounds great bubbles! What was the delivery on the frer for 5 if you don't mind me asking? I found some 7.50 for 2 with next day delivery which. I've saved. Least I know if I'm late I can get them here quick. Or- I could just go to a shop, lol.

Living in a small town everyone knows each other though, and you can guarantee bumping into someone just as you've popped the tests in the Basket (poorly disguised by take a break or that's life on top &#128514

I'm really going to try my hardest not to become obsessive with tests when I get my bfp- for one it costs a fortune and secondly, what ever is going to happen is going to happen regardless. Much easier said than done though.

I can't believe how desperately I need another baby, especially as Eden wasn't planned. It's just like an overwhelming urge, bordering desperation, I so wish I could take a more relaxed approach. I know it wil happen, but getting pregnant is one thing, keeping the baby is another!

Must try and stay positive though xx

I hear you all on not wanting to test early too. I got a positive way early and it was so stressful wondering if I'd miss my period, then we during if everything was ok for 1.5 extra weeks. I probably won't be testing early either. I don't even want to test if I miss my period. Wish there was an easier way to do all of this.
